For a long time now, I’ve had this Text Reflection animation on 2 tracks, plus the background, based on a Ben Espanto tutorial : Cinematic Title Reveal Effect Tutorial on Shotcut Free Video Editor - YouTube
In @jonray’s topic : “Mirror” animated text title effect - utilising filter sets
the reply to @musicalBox:
I’ll look out for you on Spotify then …
I’m now just waiting for you to tell me this can be done one ONE track. Just a matter of time.
was the trigger.
So here’s the Text Reflet filter set to place on a transparent clip of 8 seconds (minimum) for a project 1920x1080, 30fps.
Enter the text in uppercase into the 2 Text: Simple filters, and choose the same color for both.
The Size, Position & Rotate filter resizes and positions the text wherever you like.
EDIT: This title effect has been greatly improved with the help of MusicalBox. Many thanks to him.
